Steve joined SF Parks Alliance (NOMADgardens Fiscal Sponsor) in 2012 to lead the Park Partner Program and help neighborhood groups develop their projects. Steve is inspired by the dedication that neighborhood volunteers show in pursuing their ideas and he loves supporting them in their efforts. He is particularly drawn to innovative ideas that customize the playground renovations and help activate left over spaces, such as Street Parks. Prior to joining SFPA, Steve was working with Rails-to-Trails Conservancy to develop and activate trails and also worked in urban forestry and planning infill development projects. He is a certified Project Management Professional and has a Mechanical Engineering degree from Cal Poly SLO. When he isn’t working, you may find Steve mountain biking, hiking, playing soccer, or trying some new outdoor adventure!
Favorite park: McLaren, since that is the one he spends the most time in!
